I still don't understand why are the enemies highlighted in green when the gas is green.

ID: h9pobsz

That would be a fix, I think. Bloodhoud sees his enemies in red, why is it green with Caustic?

ID: h9psei2

I imagine so it's still somewhat hard to see. You would be absolutely lasering everyone if they showed up in red AND were slowed AND taking health damage

ID: h9px9kj

Seems like it would be a simple fix

ID: h9pydym

Does it change with different color blind settings?

ID: h9q462t

This is also in the face of Bloodhound’s scan and other such highlights just being plain orange/red with clear markings… they just made Nox give enemies a glow.

Caustic was the first legend I bought because I loved the idea of gaining a vision advantage. Gas that enemies can't see through, but I can? Sounds fun! but in reality it barely fazes players' vision, and it ends up giving Seer an advantage. I agree that it needs a big change.

ID: h9q55nf

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I was under the impression Caustic could only see enemies in his gas cloud, not necessarily see straight through it.

ID: h9q5lez

You're right; when I say "see through" I envision a scenario where I am a Caustic in a room filled with my own gas, and I can clearly see my enemies. In reality, you can't. But a Seer could ads in a room full of gas and spot everyone no problem.

As a caustic main, I feel this… buff this passive respawn. It’s overdue!

ID: h9pvkv9

It doesn't really need a buff, it just needs to be fixed.

ID: h9q6mbp

How about they actually turn it on and then we'll see if it needs a buff.

i was almost terrified that you were gonna say broken as in "too good" but thank god its just a genuine bug, too bad he cant see everything

“My vision is unclear.”

7 : Anonymous2021/08/20 23:34 ID: h9q5rp9

I noticed this right away when I started playing caustic, my friend mentioned how I could see people on my gas and I was like???? I can see where they're taking damage but I've never been able to see anyone in my gas and apparently he's supposed to be able to do that, definitely needs to be fixed

Wait caustic has a passive?

Fix this now! He asked please god dammit!

Him and Bangalore have kinda been indirectly nerfed from Wallhack Legends but honestly he’s in good spot right now. Actually pretty underrated as unlike Bang’s smoke just cause you can see him in his gas doesn’t mean you can just full send on his team without thought

ID: h9pqxt0

He is in a good spot right now, I totally agree. I now just want a passive that does what it promises. Right now it doesn't always do this.

If respawn doesn't like that we can see enemies through the gas (lies, they obviously like this, see Seer) then Caustic's passive should get a rework.

ID: h9prb80

Ohh yeah I agree his passive is ass especially compared to later passives that’s been added.

Apex suffers from the same powercreep all games who add characters overtime does as Devs get better and better over time.

Just look at his and Pathfinder’s basic ass passive compared to Seer and Valk’s. It sucks when you’re an older character so yeah the least they can do is fix it

How is caustic broken again? He was nerfed in the density of his gas, so it is much easier to see and im pretty sure the slow is much less impactful than it used to be

ID: h9pockg

Broken can mean it doesn’t work as the video mention. Broken is often used in a connotation of such and such being really strong

ID: h9poh8p

Oh wait, i saw the first part and assumed they went crazy and killed a full squad no problem sorry mb

ID: h9poj37

Caustic isn't broken, but his passive is. Or at least it's not working the way it is being described.

"Nox Vision - you gain threat vision on enemies moving through your gas"

In my video you can clearly see that that is not happening.

ID: h9ponmj

Oh, you have to be in gas to see highlights through it from what i remember

ID: h9ptxu3

The slow never got touched

ID: h9pu4k1

I thought they nerfed the slow with the damage back in season 8, or was it the visual effects

13 : Anonymous2021/08/20 21:42 ID: h9pr089

I thought this was a feature, he had everting else nerfed while i was away, come back and no more nox vision? That must be a nerf

14 : Anonymous2021/08/20 22:23 ID: h9pwlpy

I thought it only activated when you were in the gas, cause idk if ive ever seen people through the gas from range

ID: h9q0rso

You can see an octane that’s downed being highlighted when he’s not in the gas but not the other people

15 : Anonymous2021/08/20 23:20 ID: h9q40ru

And people complain Crypto doesn't have a passive. This man Caustic has two abilities and his passive is he doesn't hurt himself.

16 : Anonymous2021/08/20 23:39 ID: h9q6du7

Been a caustic player since I could afford him,and I've played since day 2. it has literally never worked and I just treat him as a character with no passive.

ID: h9q7kn7

Jesus that sucks. It just stopped working for me this season for some reason. At first I thought it was a legitimate nerf, but then I found out it’s bugged for many people

ID: h9q7u8w

I think maybe 1 in 20 times it'll trigger AFTER they've left the smoke. It sure doesn't help when they're in it.

17 : Anonymous2021/08/20 23:52 ID: h9q80dl

Eat shit he just got balanced to a usable legend

18 : Anonymous2021/08/20 21:20 ID: h9pnzsw

I think he’s in a good place now, you make him any better than people will call him better Bangalore and complain about wallhacks or something.

ID: h9po7eh

It clearly says in his description that Caustic can see enemies that are in his gas. In my video I have proof that this isn't always the case i.e. it's broken.

I'm not talking about Caustic as a whole, only about the passive.

ID: h9poguo

I’m all for it, but people complain. Ppl are now saying my boy Fusey is OP cuz wallhack ult or something.

ID: h9pr12z

Wait, I thought you had to be in the gas with them in order for the passive to work?

But yeah, this crap works whenever it wants to, to the point that I'm presently surprised when something is actually highlighted.

19 : Anonymous2021/08/20 22:45 ID: h9pzftl

Caustic mains are never happy

20 : Anonymous2021/08/20 22:04 ID: h9ptz7r

Aw shit, here we go again

ID: h9pumqs

Absolutely not. Caustic is in a very good spot right. His passive just needs to work all the time (edit: when enemies are in gas of course) instead of whenever it wants to.

21 : Anonymous2021/08/20 23:11 ID: h9q2t0n

I do love the stinky poo gas man and wish this issue was fixed. Instead of highlighting green, maybe make it white? So it’s not eye-poppingly obvious, but noticeable.

When this happens, I would like Bangalore to also get a grey outline of players in her cloud. Right now, both characters have line of sight disabling mists easily countered with threat detector sights and recon characters, especially Seer. Give our smoky legends some Visine!

Guys, you gotta get your definition of broken straight…
